Oyo Health Workers Begin Seven-Day Warning Strike From Monday

The Oyo State Chapter of the Medical and Health Workers’ Union of Nigeria has directed all its members to commence a seven-day warning strike starting Monday, June 24, 2024, to press for the union’s demands.

This decision was announced in a notification letter sent to members across all health institutions, including ministries, departments, and local government areas.

The letter, signed by the union’s President, John Fabunmi, was obtained by The PUNCH in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Sunday.

Fabunmi stated that the strike action is necessary to further push the union’s demands, noting that despite reminders to the State Government about their grievances, no action has been taken to address the issues.

The letter reads in part: “Re: Notification of Industrial Action. Sequel to our letter with ref. No. OYSC/MHWUN/AD/INDU.ACT/0524 dated May 27, 2024 on the above subject matter giving the state government a 14-day ultimatum to attend to all our grievances, we wish to draw the attention of Your Excellency to the fact that up till now nothing has been done to assuage the present situation.”

“In view of the present situation and agitations from every quarter in our union, the union has, therefore, resolved to embark on a seven-day warning strike to further press for the attention of the government to attend to agitations.

“All our members in all health institutions, ministries and all Local Governments will be participating in the seven days warning strike which will commence on 12:01am midnight of Monday, June 24, 2024, after further actions may be embarked upon,” Fabunmi added.
